About us

StickyJ Medical ID and sister company Thoughtful Impressions have been family owned and operated for more than 21 years. The company is led by CEO Lori Torman, who has an eye for great quality and classic styles. In the early days of medical id bracelets (we're talking 1960's), medical alert bracelets were pretty boring -- basically engraved metal tags with curb link chains. The same styles were offered for children, just smaller (no wonder kids didn't want to wear them). And, by the end of the 20th century things hadn't improved that much. Lori was among the first to recognize that medical id's could be fashion conscious, and in 2005 launched designs in leather as well as stainless, and introduced polyester kids medical id bracelets that had cute designs. The sport strap line of child medical id's she introduced nearly 20 years ago is still the most popular line of children's medical jewelry on the market today. And, we now produce more than 100 different styles of medical alert bracelets and necklaces for men and women. Our engraved bracelets are individually custom engraved by our team of master engravers, ship within three (M-F) business days from the date you order, and all products come with a 90 warranty against manufacturing defects. Please come and shop with us today. It will be our pleasure to serve you.

Sticky Story: How We Got The Name Sticky Jewelry

Sticky Story: How We Got The Name Sticky Jewelry

8th Jul 2022

StickyJ Medical Name Origin

So, What’s in a Name? A note from our CEO.

Lori Torman StickyJ CEO

Sticky Jewelry opened for business in the fall of 2000. Our first product was an engraved photo pin that could hold a Polaroid i-Zone photo. The Polaroid i-Zone camera had just made its debut, and our intention was to create jewelry and accessories that could hold the small-format photos it produced.

The original Polaroid i-Zone film had a peel-off sticky back, so you could ‘stick’ the photo anywhere you wanted. We had considered several names for the company, but ‘Sticky’ was the most popular, so we named the company Sticky Jewelry.

Well, the i-Zone camera didn’t turn out to be as successful as Polaroid had hoped. It didn’t keep Polaroid from going into bankruptcy, and it didn’t result in many orders for our i-Zone accessories. So, our company shifted its focus away from photo pins and concentrated instead on unique, personalized jewelry.

We began offering lockets, and added photo keychains, bracelets, trendy wrist lockets, and a wide assortment of gift items that could be engraved. We also began developing a line of fashion conscious medical id alert bracelets and medical alert jewelry. Sticky Jewelry quickly became one of the top personalized jewelry resellers on the internet. We combine quality and affordability with fast turnaround, flat-rate shipping, unbeatable customer service, and a 30-day money back guarantee.

Over the past year alone, hundreds of customers have responded to our customer feedback surveys to tell us that their buying experience was clearly superior to what they’d experienced elsewhere, that they would definitely shop with us again, and that they would recommend us to others.

We’re delighted to get that kind of feedback. Pleasing customers is what business is all about, and we intend to never lose sight of that fact.

But, what about the name? Well, as our personalized jewelry business continues to grow, we are often questioned about the name Sticky Jewelry. Some have suggested that our name should be more dignified. Others have told us that they were fearful about purchasing from a company named Sticky Jewelry. (We’re glad, by the way, that they overcame their fear.)

The topic of changing our name comes up often at management meetings. But, so many customers have now come to know us by our unusual name that changing it seems to pose a bigger problem than keeping it. The Sticky name seems to help people remember who we are, and they do keep coming back. Like it or not, the name Sticky Jewelry has already ‘stuck’.

If you are not yet a Sticky Jewelry customer, we hope that you will come and shop with us and discover for yourself that although our name is a bit strange, the jewelry and gifts we sell and the service we deliver is truly exceptional.

Sincerely,

Lori Torman
CEO & Founder
